WNO and The National Trust are working together in partnership to support the performances with a rich programme of events at Trust properties.
Fact and Fiction
History has inspired great artists to create thrilling re-imaginings of historical events. Set in the splendour of some of the finest National Trust properties, Fact and Fiction combines costumed operatic performances with the perspectives of historians and historical novelists. If you are making time to see all three operas, Fact and Fiction is the perfect way to spend the middle afternoon of a consecutive cycle. Tudor themed refreshments are available.
